This is a true local favorite. Breakfast, lunch and dinner crowd. Not a big place by any means, so get there when you can and enjoy a nice a nice variety of tacos, enchiladas and burrito dishes. The chips and salsa starter is very tasty....More

Love their breakfast tacos, especially carne guisada! Also, all the enchiladas and tortilla soup are delicious! Small, quaint place with little parking, so best to go off times when not so busy. The owner and wait staff really try to please!

They have pretty good breakfast tacos and coffee. I prefer their breakfast to lunch and dinner. Local favorite!

Love this place. The service is fast and friendly, the food is delicious, definitely not your average "chain" Mexican restaurant (it is solely owned by Chavelo himself who actually works there on many occasions). Definite home style recipes. Delicioso.

The Carne Guisada is on point!!! Meat was tender...not a lot of fat on it. Salsa tasted freshly made. Rice was fluffy like how my grandma used to make it. Beans were on par. Horchata was crisp and refreshing!

Someone said yes, but I say no! They taste like the bagged ones you buy at the grocery store! Nothing remarkable!
